For me there aren't many songs that make you stop, take a breath, and begin to see the world from the singer's point of view... this is one of them

I love this song and the fact that I think it's the least "special" of all he recorded goes some way to explaining how passionate I am about his music. "Your Precious Love" must surely affect anyone who hears it.
